As West Brom entered October, Valerien Ismael was still riding a crest of a wave as the club’s new head coach after putting together a 10-match unbeaten streak.
However, three defeats in five games, all away from The Hawthorns, have put a different spin on things at a time when their main rivals are only going from strength to strength.
Ahead of two games at their home ground, Ismael and his squad have the opportunity to finish the latest batch of games on a high, keeping them in close proximity to second-placed Fulham.
Ismael will be forced to make at least one change with Adam Reach in line to feature at right wing-back as a replacement for the suspended Darnell Furlong.
Callum Robinson is expected to return in the final third, taking the spot of either Matt Phillips or Jordan Hugill.
Midfielder Alex Mowatt will be assessed as he continues to recover from a foot injury, but Jayson Molumby is also an option for the Baggies.
McCann will likely make alterations to his Hull starting lineup, handing recalls to the likes of Mallik Wilks and Josh Magennis.
A facial injury for Richard Smallwood will be assessed, but George Honeyman could return to the squad after illness.
West Bromwich Albion possible starting lineup:
Johnstone; Ajayi, Bartley, Clarke; Reach, Livermore, Molumby, Townsend; Robinson, Hugill, Grant

Hull City possible starting lineup:
Ingram; Coyle, Bernard, Greaves, Elder; Docherty, Smallwood; Wilks, Moncur, Lewis-Potter; Magennis
Nevertheless, West Brom have only posted back-to-back wins on one occasion since August 21, a sign that much work is required if they are to last the pace.
On a more positive note, they possess the best defensive home record in the league, shipping just four goals during seven games.
